Memory Lane

I just remembered that it was a year ago tomorrow that I got stuck in the Phoenix airport, a complete wreck after leaving my beautiful friends, and running from terminal to terminal trying to get home for Easter... I still remember the name of the Southwest Airlines ticket lady that listened to me cry and did everything she could to get me home...

Gaye from Phoenix, this trip down memory lane is dedicated to you...

What a Good Friday it is...

Exactly one year ago today I said "goodbye" to my DTS friends and headed for home after spending six months together falling in love with Jesus and doing our best to love other people...

So here I am, a year later, still falling in love with Jesus, and, just this morning (and pretty much every time I read anything in the Bible lately) being reminded that my life should be spent loving people...

We must go.
Live to feed the hungry.
Stand beside the broken.
We must go.

God is all about relationship, love, people, relationship with people, loving people, people loving people, people in a loving relationship with Him... and that, my friends, pretty much sums it up.

O-Town, New Zealand...


  • there are more sheep than people
  • the video rental store's check-out log is hand written
  • everything closes at 4p
  • people hang dry their clothes... primitive huh?
  • the sunrises are pink and purple
  • everyone's garden is beautiful
  • the light switch is on when it's flipped down, and is off when it's up
  • the toilets have two buttons... one for a regular flush and one for a super flush
  • the local ice cream shop gives three HUGE scoops for a dollar
  • roosters crow in the morning
  • everyday we have "tea" instead of dinner
  • the weather changes like crazy!
  • kids ride their bikes to school
  • with the accent, I can't tell if someone is saying "letter" or "ladder",and "bear"or "beer"
What a good place to be...
